  Production (Main stages)   Pre-Production: Planning, scripting & storyboarding, etc     Production:   The actual shooting/recording.     Post-Production: Includes everything between production and creating the final master copy. PRE-PRODUCTION    It is the stage in which all the planning for the project takes place. During this stage, the production is broken down into individual scenes and all the places, props, cast members, costumes, special effects and  visual effects are identified. The script is also written at this stage, if it has not already been completed. A well detailed schedule is produced and arrangements are made for the necessary elements or people to be available to the film-makers at the appropriate times .   PRODUCTION    This is the stage at which all the filming is carried out. All scenes planned out in pre-production are filmed at the relevant locations. Each scene is filmed as many times as the director deems fit, to ensure the best quality scenes will be used to construct the film. This is where the strength of the pre-production work is tested. Great precautions and care must be taken to make sure that all the filming is done correctly and all necessary shots are taken, as it is sometimes difficult or impossible to go back and repeat certain events if the filming is incomplete when it comes to the post-production stage. POST-PRODUCTION In this stage the film is assembled by the editor. The first job of the film editor is to build a rough cut taken from or scenes based on individual shots. The purpose of building a rough cut is to select and order the best shots. The next step is to create a fine cut. This is getting all the shots to flow smoothly in a seamless story. Trimming- which is the process of shortening scenes by a few minutes, seconds, or even frames- is done during this phase. Editing of footage, all music, graphics, menus etc are also added in this stage. After the fine cut has been screened and approved by the director and producer, the picture is locked, this means no further changes are made.
